Dakota Bales was born on December 19, 1996 into an abusive family and spent the first 5 years of his life vacillating in and out of foster care system with his 4 other siblings - one of which is his identical twin brother Joshua, whom is also an actor. At age 5, he and his siblings were adopted into a Caucasian family and raised with 2 additional older siblings, as well as a loving Mom and Dad. Growing up, he was always fascinated with television and actors; particularly superheros. Read more... from there his passion for acting was born. His mom entered him into a talent scouting show with his twin brother Joshua at age 13, and they walked away with a manager (Marlene Peroutka) interested in their skills. By age 14 they were represented not only by Marlene, but also Baron Entertainment and well on their way to success. In that same year, his family adopted another little sister named Sophia Giuliana, which he adores. Dakota's main goal is to use his experiences in foster care to show other kids like him that they can be anything they want to be, and where they came from doesn't have to be where they stay. He looks at every day as another chance to show the world how incredible all kids are through his acting.
